Catch Up Part 2

I sat down with my computer for the first time all week yesterday and was shocked to see that my cookies had been featured on The Nester's blog. WOW!!! It was a fun surprise and I am so honored!!! If you haven't checked her blog out (which I'm sure you have because she has a gazillion readers), go check it out!! It is awesome!

Onto the cookies......
My last three orders were fun ones. Courtney (not the same Courtney that ordered Anniversary cookies) contacted me about doing some Airplane cookies for her little boy Titus that was turning 2. Courtney's Dad works for Delta Airlines and Titus has taken up a true love for airplanes and anything Delta. She also sent me a pic of the T shirt Titus was going to wear for his party.

I wanted to make the cookie similar to the plane on the tshirt so I drew the plane onto cardstock, cut it out, and used it to hand cut the cookies into the same shape as the airplane on the t.

I used the same colors as the t to decorate them, and added the Delta logo to the front.

Courtney also wanted some "2's," so I thought it would be so cute to make them look like a runway.

Happy birthday sweet Titus!!

Next up is a sweet Monogram themed set of cookies for baby Carlisle. I was really excited to do these because I went to High School with Carlisle's daddy. They wanted gray and pink, monograms and baby's name. I was also asked if I could incorporate the pattern of Carlisle's baby bedding. I took all of this info with the fact that Faith (Carlisle's Mom) has a simple and sweet taste, and came up with these:

I painted the same pattern of the bedding onto the gray cookie and added baby's name in pink. I also did a pink and white Chevron with a gray initial, and a round pink cookie with a white monogram. I love the feel of these cookies! Sweet, simple and baby girl!

And of course a couple of special cookies for big brother Jones.

Congrats Will, Faith and Jones on the newest addition!!!

Last up is a set of cookies for a Rock Star themed baby shower. David is a pastor at my church and he and his wife Rachel are INCREDIBLE musicians. They are not finding out the gender of the baby so I tried to match the cookies to the theme of the shower without being too girly or to boyish.

Guitars, onesies, music notes, rattles, metallic stars. these were fun and very different from anything I have done before. I was told to make them "glitzy" and fun. I used metallic star sprinkles on the ratlles to tie in the star theme.

I was happy to be a part of celebrating sweet baby McKinney and I can't wait to meet him or her!!

This week is full of fun Easter cookies and cupcakes! Check back for some fun posts!

  1. Those are amazing! I'm kinda worried that you got such great press - because I know you will probably be busier than ever and I was hoping to order some fun cookies for my kiddo's birthday :)

    Aww heck, I'd order some just for me for fun!

    I especially love the sweet baby shower ones - the patterns are so pretty!

    The rockstar - this kid is gonna love these pictures later! :)
